Using Vista  on a Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L SERIES S,Computer i find an 80gb drive to small and thought  ho well i'll fit another drive only to find that the cable has two connecters (one to the hard drive and the other feeding the DVD!! Apart from fitting a bigger hard drive and  curious to know,can anyone increase my knowledge by telling me of another way around this? Many thanks Jim.

You could either connect a SATA HDD to one of the SATA channels, or use a SATA optical drive instead of the IDE one, and connect a second IDE HDD in place of the original DVD.
